Black Phosphorus Enables Plasmonic Logic
22 Dec | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"Much research has been dedicated to exploiting the waves and oscillations of electrons that are produced on the surface of a metallic structure when photons of light strike it. These waves of electrons are called either surface plasmons when referring to the oscillations in charge alone, or surface plasmon polaritons when referring to both the charge oscillations and the electromagnetic wave. The field developed around exploiting this phenomenon has become known as plasmonics." by Dexter Johnson
Metamaterial Radar Is Exactly What Delivery Drones Need
10 Nov | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"As we’ve pointed out over the last few years, there are some issues with the idea of urban or suburban delivery drones. Besides the fact that they’re illegal right now, the biggest technological problem is that none of the delivery drones that we’ve seen so far seem to have any kind of sense-and-avoid capability that could realistically deal with the challenges of urban airspace, including everything from other drones to light aircraft to birds to trees to overhead wiring." by Evan Ackerman
Leading Chipmakers Eye EUV Lithography to Save Moore’s Law

"Intel, TSMC, and other chipmakers weigh extreme ultraviolet lithography, which may be ready by 2018" by Rachel Courtland
Inside the Development of Light, the Tiny Digital Camera That Outperforms DSLRs
10 Nov | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"The creator of the new Light digital camera explains how he made it work" by Rajiv Laroia
Large Number of Atoms Trapped In an Array Bolsters Quantum Computing
10 Nov | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"Digital logic depends on bits. The binary states of “0” or “1” form the basis of computing. In quantum computers, the bit is replaced by something called a quantum bit (or, qubit), which is an atomic particle that can be coerced into being both 0 and 1 simultaneously, at least for a time." by Dexter Johnson
Thermal metamaterial innovation
03 Nov | Energy Harvesting JournalFull Text External Link Indicator
"An international research team has used a "thermal metamaterial" to control the emission of radiation at high temperatures, an advance that could bring devices able to efficiently harvest waste heat from power plants and factories." Read more at:
Large-scale metamaterials could combat earthquake shocks
03 Nov | Physics WorldFull Text External Link Indicator
"Future cities could be protected from destructive earthquakes using large-scale metamaterial shields to dampen seismic waves, according to new work done by researchers in Europe. The team used 3D modelling to demonstrate the potential of the shields, which are made of arrays of cavities dug into the ground." by Ian Randall
Adding a topological fold to origami metamaterials
03 Nov | Physics WorldFull Text External Link Indicator
"A metamaterial that is soft along one edge and rigid along the other, yet also displays mechanical topological properties, has been developed by an international team of researchers. This is the first time that topological origami and kirigami techniques have been applied experimentally to metamaterials – artificial materials with tunable, well-defined properties. Apart from having developed a metamaterial with two distinct topological phases, the team is also working on theoretical guidelines for the future design and development of such materials." by Tushna Commissariat
Sound-proof metamaterial inspired by spider webs
03 Nov | Phys.OrgFull Text External Link Indicator
"Spider silk is well-known for its unusual combination of being both lightweight and extremely strong—in some cases, stronger than steel. Due to these properties, researchers have been developing spider-silk-inspired materials for potential applications such as durable yet lightweight clothing, bullet-proof vests, and parachutes." by Lisa Zyga.
